A Trip to Cologne, Germany!

I just recently spent a couple days in the beautiful Cologne, Germany!

The weather was a picture perfect 31 degrees with not a cloud in the sky. There was so much to do, in such little time. From viewing churches, smelling the first ever eau de cologne, to climbing 533 steps in the Cologne Cathedral, tasting sweets at the chocolate museum (yum), the Wallraf-Richartz Museum, taking in the breathtaking view at Köln Triangle and looking at locks of love at Hohenzollern Bridge. I really recommend sampling the local beer Kölsch at a brauhaus, tasting the delicious pastries at the many bakeries and watching the sunset along the Rhine River, while cooling down with a refreshing beverage.

Any suggestions on where to travel next???

Since settling in for the past month I’ve gotten to see more and more of Amsterdam, and even went as far as Rotterdam. Though it was a very quick visit (and I’ll have to go back for sure), we had some time to sample some Trappist beer and enjoy some Spaghetti Parmigiano, that was prepared in a cheese wheel, what!?! It was so good, I’m still thinking about it. Thank you Mangiare Rotterdam.

Stay tuned for further adventures! And keep your fingers crossed, as I have another audition this weekend!

First Amsterdam Audition!

Good news, not even a month in and I’ve had my first audition in Amsterdam! Yay! It was such a lovely fun experience, this city is so friendly and welcoming.  Annnnnd I’ve already scheduled my next audition! Fingers crossed!

Apart from acting and work, I’ve had the chance to see more of this beautiful city! From flea markets (which I love, open rain or shine), to unique restaurants, music festivals, and to fascinating historic buildings.

This city has so much for offer any day, any time of day! And so much art everywhere you look!

Stay tuned for updates and hopefully some good news!

Cheers,
Melissa
